A HISTORIC pipe organ at St Thomas Anglican Church in Moonee Ponds has been given a new lease of life.

Essendon's Isabel, 13, has taken on the task of making the pipes sing again and the church has finally found a regular player.

As reported by Moonee Valley Leader in March, the parish was searching for a player to keep the pipe organ, which is more than 100 years old, from sitting idle.

Isabel's dad, Sydney Thompson, said he read about the opportunity in the Leader and thought it was a great idea for her to play.

The Lowther Hall student has been playing piano since she was five, the organ since she was 10, and was preparing for her grade 8 piano exams.

Isabel said she was enjoying the experience and it was improving her skills.

"It's really a good experience and I'm just happy to share my gift with other people," Isabel said.

Isabel, who also plays clarinet and saxophone, has been playing fortnightly at St Thomas' services.

The objective is to reach human immortality—that is, to create things which are necessary to mankind, necessary to the purpose of the existence of mankind, and which have become the fruit that drives the creation of a higher state of mankind than ever existed before."
